Fox News announced this week that it had hired former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile.
The former DNC chair became a target of Fox News personalities after she was accused of leaking a CNN debate question to Hillary Clinton.
In a statement on Monday, Fox News said it had a duty to reach out to Democrats.
Meanwhile, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is waiting out a suspension which she reportedly received after making inappropriate comments about a Muslim member of Congress.
Fox News viewers immediately lashed out on Twitter at the decision to hire Brazile during Pirro’s absence.
